DRZ goes over the edge

Recommended Posts

I thought that some of you may enjoy seeing what happened to me this weekend.

228462449

Going down the Devil's Staircase, I lost my balance and went over the edge. :applause: The DRZ rolled over me and landed upright on a tree. I am a lucky dog, because if it hadn't caught, I would have been walking home (seriously steep country).

Now I love my bike, but it took 5 tough guys to haul that pig back up to the trail. I don't recommend the experience. :thumbsup:

Unfortunately, all I've got to commemorate the story is this picture and a scraped up arm. The bike came off the mountain with minor scrapes on the pipe, and nothing else (fired up first kick :applause:)

Not always, my uncle broke a leg and rear wheel once when he went over the edge like this.

5 guys just about had a heart attack to boost it out.

I am definitely adding a rope and tackle to my kit.

:thumbsup: Hopefully that would be the Ol' reverse Voodoo....if you have it you will never need it.

no..not related..

the finger got stuck in the brake rotor when loading the bike. Kinda stung a little.

definitely should have invested in a rotor cover.

Finished loading it. Went and got the tip of the finger stitched back on, got some Vicoden, and went riding for three days.

How can one machine cause so much pleasure and so much pain??
